Stodoły is the smallest district of Rybnik, located in the north-western part of the city on the Rybnik Water Reservoir. Its name might just come from barns (“stodoły” means “barns” in English), which were typical for the former rural settlement, or the "hundred holes", meaning a large number of pits associated with the mining of iron ore. The most important monument here is a Cistercian mansion, built in the Baroque style in 1736.
In the village of Zwonowice located amidst the forests of the Landscape Park "Cistercian Landscape Compositions of Rudy Wielkie", one can admire an interesting hunting lodge from the mid-nineteenth century on the mountain of Winna Góra. The building was erected during the reign of Duke Victor I, whose residence lay in nearby Rudy Wielkie. Previously, there was a farm building on this site, which belonged to the Cistercian monastery of Rudy Wielkie.
The Rudy train station is located in the middle of the old narrow-gauge railway line between Gliwice and Racibórz. There is an open air railway museum, with a mile-long stretch of track (along which tourist trains run). It is an attraction on the Industrial Monuments Route. The narrow-gauge railway appeared in Rudy at the end of the nineteenth century. It was in March 1899 that “Kramer and Partners” opened a 23-kilometer railway line from Gliwice through Nieborowice to Rudy and Racibórz Płonia, and three months later, it started carrying passengers.
Located among the forests, the village of Rudy is known primarily for the old Cistercian abbey and the Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To the east of the parish church, it is worthwhile to visit a cemetery, which has been operating on this site since the late seventeenth century. The neo-Romanesque church of Saint Mary Magdalene can be found on the cemetery. In its vicinity, we can see, among others, the tombstone of Juliusz Roger, a doctor and social activist, who still remains in the memory of the local population.
